We stayed at The Croft Guest House on a touring holiday of Devon and Cornwall, and we really could not ask for anything more. The room was are spacious, spotlessly clean and the breakfasts are really good. The house is in a beautiful part of Devon - and close to a couple of pubs which offer great local seafood. But...

The house itself is nicely situated near the water with nice views of the boats, swans and coastal railway line out front. The room itself was very clean and well decorated but...

We got what we hoped for in the way of a very clean comfortable room and a very good full English. What we did not expect was the charm and humour of Colin who as 'front of house' is a...
